If you aren’t excited about the next-gen Ford Mustang Mach 1, nobody can help you. The Mach 1 will be the very best, high-performance model you’ve ever seen and if the rumors are true, it will be a looker too. After 10-year-long break, the Mach 1 is coming back on roads boasting completely new design, monstrous engine, and revised interior. Details about the 2017 Ford Mustang Mach 1 are still pretty scarce but some trusted sites created a series of renderings of what this pony car might look like. We know that you eagerly wait to find out more about the 2017 Ford Mustang Mach 1, so let’s start.
2017 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Exterior
The exterior design of the new Mach 1 is still a mystery. The vehicle will still stay a true American at heart, but it seems that Ford intends to broaden its horizons since the Mach 1 will be sold in many other countries. We took some of the design cues of the Evos based on Ford’s new global design language and created a rendering to get a clear picture of Mach 1’s design. Following the footsteps of the new design language, the carmaker will probably place the trapezoidal grille on the pony’s front end along with the slim wrap-around headlights.
Apparently, the overall length of the Mach 1 will be changed with the rear overhang being shortened. The new Mach 1 will look far more dynamic than its predecessor. The carmaker managed to achieve that by adding sloping and raised shoulder lines. The B pillar will no longer be present. However, it will keep its distinguishing features such as the black rear wing, the fading stripes, the sequential triple taillights, and the twin exhausts. Of course, the rear end of the car will be crowned with the wing for improved stability at higher speeds.
Interior of new 2017 Ford Mustang Mach 1
More details about the interior of the 2017 Ford Mustang Mach 1 will be available soon. Even though we don’t have deeper details at this point, we believe that the newcomer will be loaded to gills with latest technological, entertainment, and safety features. New exterior colors are also in the books.
2017 Mach 1 Engine
What lies under the bonnet of the machine? The first generation of the Mach 1 was powered by the 351-horsepower V8. If the rumors are true, the carmaker will pack something more… sinister this time. It is said to be propelled by a Voodoo V8 with two turbochargers. So what this means in terms of power and performance? The answer is simple, more than 600 horses. The engine will probably be mated to Ford’s 9-speed or 10-speed automatic transmission. Even though the carmaker hasn’t confirmed anything yet, the potential of amazing level of horsepower is there for sure. The newcomer will probably have fully independent and lowered suspension.
